I have the golden wheels on my car and they where in good condition but dull, In the owners manual it said to rub vaseline into the surface - I had never heard of this treatment but thought if Porsche recomend this it shouldn't do any harm! Well I was amazed. The surface came up with a lovely sheen - not a chrome shine but a lovely satin like sheen that suits the style of the car and wheels verywell
